Chug, chug, chugging into the past at CAMA festival

KENT — After a one-year hiatus due to the pandemic, the Connecticut Antique Machinery Association presented its 36th Fall Festival last weekend, from Friday to Sunday, Sept. 24 to 26. 

Friday dawned with gray, threatening skies, but by the time the gates opened at 10 a.m. there were glorious blue sunny skies.

Breakfast and lunch options continue to grow in Kent

KENT — A dark secret of the restaurant industry is that the long hours and high stress can take a toll on workers, leaving some with addiction issues.

Jason Perillo has seen evidence of this often in his years as vice president of communications and chief marketing officer for High Watch Recovery Center in Kent.

Farm markets at their season peak

Summer vegetables are hitting their peak right now, especially with the arrival of corn and tomatoes at farmstands and markets. 

Two towns that continue to have thriving markets, where local growers come together weekly, are Kent and Cornwall.

A delightful weekend to be out and enjoying the Sidewalk Sale Days

KENT — The Kent Sidewalk Sales returned last weekend, with goods for sale in tents and on tables outside the town’s many retail establishments, the annual and popular tag sale at St. Andrew’s Church and of course music at many locations throughout the weekend and throughout the town.
